RT Classic Project - RT # 0001

I've had this RT since 1999 and it has served me well. It was cut down a considerable amount so it isn't nearly as heavy as a regular RT. I played with it in national tournaments all the way until the end of 2001 even after almost every other team on the circuit had switched to electronic guns.



I still play with it on occasion, but playing with a powerfeed is just too awkward after nearly a decade of playing with vert feed guns 99% of the time. Plus I really regret having it anodized blue. I'm a big fan of black guns.

So, I bought a second RT, mainly for the vert feed.



I am hoping I can chop up this huge vert feed, chop off the very un-needed front, add an aftermarket feedneck and then cut up the rail to make it lighter and a bit more presentable. We'll see how it turns out.

Well done.

I agree I like the look of the black and blue rt. But if you dont like the color why not just have it changed. Also if you dont like the feed you coulda just got a ule body and not have to do all the work on the other rt. Then again if you want a project..knock yourself out, all the power to ya

Thanks. That chopped up gun was made by Jeff at AGD to show Tom and the rest the guys how much size/weight they could lose for the RT Pro. Needless to say, they went a different direction.

I'll probably sell off the top RT in pretty much that configuration after I finish. Valve #0001 will just go in the new vert feed gun.

The gun has already been re-anodized once. Doing again makes me nervous. Plus, I was thinking someone might like it as is.

ULE bodies don't fit Classic RTs.

Your image has a swear word in it so it won't display properly for everyone.

I'd sell it if there was a better way to make a more modern RT vert feed. I just haven't seen one.

Nice! Looks like it was made to be that way. Can't wait to see it on the gun.

Powdercoat is next for the body. The rail needs to get cut up as well.

The blue parts will probably be sold off as a complete marker.

Haha, no the splash rail and the drop are both going to be sold off. The rail is actually fitted for an intellifeed so I hope someone wants it.

Got the vert feed back and it looks perfect. Awesome color match to the feedneck.



Now I have to get the other parts anodized black so they look just as fresh.

Thanks. I am really happy with it.

I think a regular barrel will work if you make them fit tight and possibly make a small divot so you know where to set it. I'll have to test it and see.

I screwed the parts together to get an idea how it will look after anodizing. It's looking good but the rail is still heavy and I'm not feeling the large CP bottomline so I might have to reconsider some parts or additional milling to the rail.

Can you do any internal ULE milling to the rail? In the front of course, not where the air goes through. You can cut down an Intelli Frame inside pretty good too.
